[image]Smoke from fires in Alberta and Saskatchewan over Manitoba, Ontario, and Minnesota - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
Smoke from prairie fires in Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada (to the west of the areas pictured here), appears to be riding along with the prevailing winds and heading west across Manitoba (top left), Ontario (top right), and even dips down into Minnesota (bottom center), west of Lake Superior. This image was captured by MODIS on May 31, 2002. Sensor: Terra/MODIS. Data Start Date: 5/31/02. Data End Date: 5/31/02.

[image]Interacting Galaxy Pair Arp 65 - NASA/JPL-Caltech/M. L. Giroux (East Tennessee State University)
High resolution images from NASA's Spitzer infrared telescope and GALEX ultraviolet telescope show the difference in the distribution of young and old stars in the Arp 65 pair of interacting galaxies. In the short-wavelength infrared at 3.6 microns (first image), cool old stars are bright, so the beautiful grand design spiral patterns in the old stellar disks are visible. In contrast, at longer infrared wavelengths, at 8 microns, bright clumps of young stars are detected (second image)...

A combination of heavy rains and melting snow filled the Red River in northeastern North Dakota and western Minnesota. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite captured these images of the flooding on April 4 and April 6, 2004. The flooding is more visible in the false-color images where liquid water is dark blue, and snow and ice are light blue.

NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope's sensitive infrared detectors map out faint regions of new star formation in this pair of colliding galaxies known as Arp 107. Like a beautiful pearl necklace, young star clusters have formed along the ring-like tidal arm in this system.

In contrast, in the shorter wavelength 3.6 micron band (first picture), the older stars in the small companion to the northeas...

Floods occasionally spread across the visibleearth.nasa.gov/view_rec.php?id=18883 wide, shallow valley that flanks the river, and new channels are left behind when the water recedes.
